Avenged Sevenfold (sometimes abbreviated to A7X), is a band from Huntington Beach, CA, consisting of members M. Shadows, Zacky Vengeance, Synyster Gates, Johnny Christ, and The Rev. Influences ranging from Pantera and Metallica to Misfits and Guns N' Roses. The band got their name from the book of Genesis in the Bible and the story of Cain and Abel, where Cain is punished to live forever in exile, alone and miserable. Anyone who relieved Cain of his misery by killing him would be "avenged sevenfold," or punished in a way that is seven times worse than Cain's punishment. Although the band has been labeled metal, metalcore and hard rock in many publications, the band themselves claim that they are a metal/hard rock band and have no musical similarities to metalcore in any way. Recently M. Shadows' vocal stylings have changed more to focus on melodic singing than on hardcore screaming, due to the band's desire to change the direction of their music. Shadows had minor throat surgery in 2004, but this did not affect their decision to change musical styles.

Founding member and drummer, The Reverend Tholomew Plauge (James "Jimmy" Sullivan) recently passed away on December 28th 2009 and has yet not been replaced. His death appears to have been due to natural causes.
Other former members include Matt Wendt, Justin Sane and Dameon Ash (all bassists).

Avenged Sevenfold has a vast fan-base, spanning the whole globe and are notorious known for their symbol, the Deathbat. In addition, both Synyster Gates and Zacky Vengeance have clothing lines, Syn Gate clothing and Vengeance University respectively.

A7X are in the process of recording their fifth album and with the help of Mike Portnoy, they have been able to create the vision that the Rev would have wanted. This album should hopefully be released later in 2010/early 2011.
